Actor Rowan Atkinson has been hospitalised after being involved in a car crash.
The Mr Bean star crashed his McLaren F1 sports car into a tree and lamppost, before it caught fire.
The emergency services were then called to Haddon near Peterborough and Atkinson was taken to hospital with a shoulder injury, according to reports.
A spokeswoman for the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said:
"Crews brought the fire under control by 8.13pm. They made the vehicle safe and used one hose reel to put out the fire.
"There was one casualty but he was not trapped."
The Blackadder star was involved in a previous car accident in 1999, escaping with minor injuries following a collision with a Rover Metro.
He also emerged unhurt after crashing into a dustcart in 2009.
Fifty-six-year-old Rowan recently appeared on motoring show Top Gear, clocking up the fastest time round the racetrack in their Star in a Reasonably Priced Car feature.
